Both Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman are in the midst of getting in shape for Deadpool 3 and the pair seem to be taking their gains personally.

After Reynolds shared a video of him doing some arm workouts and called out Jackman in his caption — “I’m training to spend several months with Hugh Jackman, who’s not nearly as nice as everyone thinks — Jackman took to Twitter to return the favor.

In a photo posted to Twitter, Jackman — who remains absolutely shredded at 54 years old — responded to Reynolds by pointing out that he’s the older of the two, even though it’s “not a competition.”

During an appearance on the HBO Max series Who’s Talking To Chris Wallace? earlier this year, Jackman detailed the process of getting back into superhero shape, which is something he hasn’t had to do since 2017’s Logan.

“I’ve learned you can’t rush it. I’ve learned that it takes time.So, we have six months from when I finish [Broadway’s The Music Man] to when I started filming. And I’m not doing any other work. I’m going to be with my family and train. That’s going to be my job for six months.”

“And I’m really fit right now. There’s one thing that about eight shows a week being on Broadway singing and dancing, is I’m fit. So, I’m healthy. I have a good place to start. And apologies, chickens. Run a mile. Start running now because I’m coming for you.”

At this time, Deadpool 3 — which will be directed by Free Guy and Night At The Museum filmmaker Shawn Levy — is scheduled to begin filming later this year and is set to hit theaters in the United States on Friday, November 8, 2024.
